Tyler Perry Kicks Off #HesGotTheWholeWorld Challenge Enlists Fantasia, J.Hud, Yolanda Adams [VIDEO]
Tyler Perry took to his Instagram Sunday (March 22) to start a new challenge amid the nationwide self-quarantine.
Just a few days ago, the filmmaker took to his Instagram to express his cleanliness amid the ongoing COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic.
With the same positive energy, in his recent video, he starts a new challenge called #HesGotTheWholeWorldChallenge.
The 50-year-old filmmaker says in the beginning of the video that has gone viral,
“I’m going to start this song and then I want all of yall to add to it.”
He then goes on to sing Nina Simone’s 1958 “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands” single. Once done singing the chorus he calls on to all other musicians and singers suggesting they add their own twist to the song to keep the chain going.
Throughout the eight-minute IGTV video, viewers see some of their favorites such as Fantasia, Yolanda Adams, Jennifer Hudson, Travis Green and many more. Since Tyler Perry has posted his video there has been 1,000+ videos uploaded onto Instagram using the filmmaker’s hashtag #HesGotTheWholeWorldChallenge. See the video below.
